Eyeglass and Hearing Aid Collection: You are invited to drop off used glasses, lenses, cases and hearing aids at any of our several collection points. Click Here for more information.

Community Welfare:  We are able to provide limited assistance to members of our community in the event of special needs.  We provide holiday turkeys to needy families and we have helped families recover from fires and other personal tragedies.  We will consider each request on a case by case basis to determine if we are able to help.  Write to us at the address below.

Community Projects:  We have assisted the residents of Cumru Township and Berks County in many ways during the past years.  Cumru Township Lions Club provided materials and labor to renovate two rooms inside Warren House . Our members repaired and painted the exterior of Warren House. We provided partial funding and labor for the erection of the Picnic Pavilion at the Warren House play area.  We donated \\$3000 towards the purchase of 2 portable heart defibrilators carried by the Township Police cars.  And in a joint project with Muhlenberg Township Lions, we contributed \\$5000 towards the purchase of a specially trained dog to be used by the District Attorney's Drug Task Force.  This dog and his handler have been credited with some remarkable drug busts in the County.
